Dunmurry Male Voice Choir
We are the Dunmurry Male Choir, you can hear us for ten bob an hour,
Education? No scholars! We've plenty of dollars, we do not live in a mansion,
Each night as we stroll round the Park, you can hear the young ladies remark,
"They're the Nutts of Dun Station with a big reputation, like the laddies from Ballymacarrett"

(there was no photo, just this page)
Born in 1893 Richard Maxwell (second from the right, middle row) was a choir member in his early twenties. He sang this chorus all through his life. Only words uncertain are "Dun Station."

Dear Ronnie, Replying to Ben's request regarding his intended family tree.
Mum (Elizabeth Hill) was born on the 2nd November, 1897, at Dunmurry to Robert and Jane Anna Hill (nee Wallace). They were married at Fountainvale Presbyterian Church, Ballymena on 15th August, 1891.  Robert was a linen finisher, born 12th July 1869 at Kellswater, Co. Antrim and died at Dunmurry 17th April, 1915.  Jane Anna was born 16th June, 1867 at Dunmurry and died there on 8th March 1924.  Mum had two brothers Sam (born 24th July 1895) and John (5th November 1901) and a sister called Anna (born 13th May, 1903).  "I have come across an old record which reveals another brother of Mum's. He is called George Hill and would be the eldest of the family.  He was born on 7th, April 1893 and was married to Mary Clarke in Christ Church, Belfast on 10th July, 1915.  As you know there was never any mention of him during Mum's lifetime.  No doubt there is a story behind this.  There is probably some connection between him and the Robert Hill (Mum's cousin) who served with the Palestine police).  Sam Hill served in the British Army during the 1914-18 War, he married Maggie Cairns in Belfast in 1926 and afterwards emigrated to Canada.  He lived in Timmins, Ontario and worked in the gold mines until his death.  (I cannot remember the date although he was still alive when Rex when he was over training for the Royal Air Force during the last war).  A daughter called Kathleen was apparently well known throughout America as a professional ice skater.  I used to correspond with Maggie and Kathleen but have not heard from them many years.  I did think of looking them up during one of our many visits to Canada but never got round to it.  John (Johnny) Hill died quite young, during the 1939-45 war. He married Mary McDowell of Lambeg, Lisburn and they had two children Alma and Richard Hill.  Richard, married Marie McClelland and they had three children, he died a few years ago (you will know the date) The children were Richard, now a minister with two children (I think); Christopher, now a surgeon with one child and Cathrine, now married and presently living in Russia.  Marie is still living in Bangor. Alma married Cecil Caughey and is now widowed.  She has a son John (no doubt you will know his progeny - if any).  Anna Hill (Mum's only sister) married Albert Carr in Belfast Cathedral on 16th March, 1925. They had two daughters Elizabeth (Betty) and Arlene.  Betty is presently living in England and Arlene in Hilden, Lisburn. (I'm sure you have more idea of their offspring than I do.) A son Alan still lives in Belfast.  Dad (Richard Maxwell) was born on the 19th January, 1893 at Belfast to Richard and Eliza Maxwell (nee Walsh).  He married Elizabeth Hill in Balmoral Presbyterian Church in April, 1922.  (Unfortunately there seems to be few records on the Maxwell side of the family).

The Maxwells, Richard and Elizabeth are buried in Derriaghy at the Parish Church, also buried there are John and Mary Hill, Elizabeths brother and his wife.

Newspaper Clipping 1 Our Soldiers - Thursday at three o'clock a meeting was held in the Y.M.C.A. Hall, Wellington Place, for the purpose of taking into consideration the establishment of a Soldiers' Home in this town. Those present included - Revs Archdeacon ??aver, Wm. Park, George Shaw, John Spence, N. Green, J. Fordyce, Henry Montgomery, ? Hanna, Dr. Hannay, J. N. Smith; Sir James H. Haslett, Sir J. P. Corry, Bart, J.P.; Messrs. R. L. Hamilton, J.P.; James Crawford, W. Greenhill, Dr. Barnett F (Indian Army), Messrs John Young, jun., Galgorm Castle; ? Workman, and R. W. Corry. The Mayor  ? J. H. Haslett), on taking the chair, and that some time since he had been asked to think over the question of a home for soldiers in Belfast. Having heard Miss ? story he thought the people of Belfast could see it to be their duty to give effect to ? He hoped the movement would not be confined to the soldiers merely, but would include the police force. Rev. Dr. Hannay then introduced Miss Sands to the audience. Miss Sands, Cork, then proceeded to give an account of work amongst soldiers. From a very small beginning, which originated in a bible-class conducted by her mother, the work had grown until now Soldiers' Homes had been established in Dublin, Cork, and Limerick. Her object in coming to Belfast was for the purpose of establishing such a home, where soldiers could spend their evenings profitably and pleasantly. She did not see why Belfast should not have such a home. She believed it only required to be put before the Belfast public. She concluded by intimating that since coming into the hall she had got a promise of one hundred pounds, but it would require about two thousand five hundred pounds. Mr. J. P. Corry, M.P., moved the following resolution - "That this meeting hereby decides to establish a similar home in Belfast to those now in operation in Cork, Dublin, and elsewhere," which was seconded by R. L. Hamilton, J.P. Rev. H. Hanna, D.D., proposed, and ? Greenhill seconded - "That this meeting heartily commends the establishing of a soldiers' home in Belfast to the sympathy and support of the Christian public of Belfast." ? W. Park proposed - "That Miss Sands be elected to act as hon. sec/" Rev. Mr. Green seconded the resolution. On the motion of ? George Shaw, seconded by Rev. J. For?, Mr. W. Workman was appointed to act as .... sorry that's all
Newspaper Clipping 2 Original Poetry - A Plea for Sabbath Rest
The cry of earth's unrest, Of ceaseless toil's dull pain,
From north to south, from east to west, Like murmur of the sleepless main,
In growing volume seems to say, "Oh, for a restful Sabbath day!"
The steamboat's surging throb, Where mammon chafes the tide,
As if the very waves to rob, Of rest which Heaven had ratified,
Resounds as though it would inveigh, 'Gainst outrage on the hallowed day!
The railway whistle shrill, Piercing the peaceful air,
Where else the loudest sounds had still, Been chime of bells, and praise and prayer,
Screams down the thundering iron way, Demanding back the Sabbath day!
The clattering tramway cars, Bearing their goodly freight,
Of comfortable worshippers, To many a sanctuary gate,
Cry out, "Must Christians, too, betray the Sanctity of God's own day?"
The weary, toil-worn horse, Through seven days doomed to plod,
Would fain the mute appeal endorse, Uprising to a righteous God,
From hearts without one hour to pray, Through all the toilsome Sabbath day.
The cattle in the stall, Demand our kindly heed;
No ear be closed to mercy's call, Nor hand withheld from pressing need;
But woe to them who pleasure weight, Or gold against the poor man's day!
Attend, ye sons of toil, To history's lesson plain,
That seven-day-labour's cruel coil, Follows in "Sunday-pleasure's train:
Then prize your rest, God's law obey, And sanctify the Sabbath day.
Let pulpit, Christian Press, And life give certain sound,
While foes of truth and righteousness, Would raze their bulwark to the ground.
God guard that bulwark, come what may, And o'er the earth breathe Sabbath day!

1) Obituary 6 May 1912 - Mr. Alexander Anderson - We regret to announce the death of Mr. Alexander Anderson, only brother of Sir Robert Anderson, Bart., which sad event took place at an early hour yesterday morning at his residence, The Park, Dunmurry. Although not in the enjoyment of as good health for some considerable time past as his friends would have wished, he was still able to visit the city almost every day, and to overlook the operations of his extensive business, and even as late as Friday last he was in Belfast for several hours without any unusual signs of indisposition. However, on returning to Dunmurry a severe attack of pneumonia quickly developed, and this, combined with his weakened general health, suddenly assumed a very grave aspect. Dr. McKisack, the family doctor, was at once summoned, and, together with Dr. Hunter, Dunmurry, and the deceased gentleman's own son, Dr. W. A. Anderson, did everything possible for his relief, but in vain.
Mr. Anderson, who was 75 years of age, was born in Ballybay, County Monaghan, in 1837. Having spent some time in the business of his father, Mr. James Anderson, who was an extensive linen merchant, he became desirous of further experience, and came to Belfast in the early fifties, and entered the firm of Day & Bottomley (now known as Millar, Boyd, & Reid), where he rapidly acquired those business accomplishments which in after life were to fit him for the successful development of business on his own account, a business which he managed up till the time of his death. In 1871 Mr. Anderson was married to Miss Mary McLaughlin, eldest daughter of the late Mr. W. H. McLaughlin, the well-known contractor, and sister of Mr. W. H. McLaughlin, J.P., Macedon. The family consists of five sons and five daughters. One of the sons is a director of the Milford Spinning Company; another is a most promising young surgeon; a third is Director in the firm of Messrs. Anderson & McAuley, a fourth is junior partner in the firm of Salters & Anderson; and the youngest is also on the staff of Messrs. Anderson & McAuley. One of the daughters is married to the Rev. Frank Harvey, B.A., minister of Sales Presbyterian Church, Manchester. For many years the late Mr. Anderson was an elder in Malone Presbyterian Church, but since removing to Dunmurry some seven years ago he joined the congregation at Dunmurry. As is well known, Sir Robert Anderson, Bart., deceased's brother, is at present on a visit to Australia, and the melancholy tidings have been cabled to Sir Robert and Lady Anderson by the family solicitor, Mr. Alexander McDowell. Unlike his more publicly known brother Sir Robert, Mr. Anderson took a little active part in public life, but he took the deepest interest in all that made for the betterment of the people in a quiet and effective way, and was especially deeply interested in work amongst the young in the Sunday schools, and for many years was a greatly esteemed member of the City Y.M.C.A. In politics he was a staunch Conservative and strong Unionist. The funeral, which will be private, will take place to-morrow.
2) To the Editor of the Northern Whig (same date as above clipping) - Sir, Your correspondent "W. D." is, I very much fear, advocating a mistaken policy for our City Council to adopt - viz., appointing inspectors! Surely it is time to cry stop ? this oft-recurring excuse for finding an incon? of considerable amount out of the public purse for otherwise unemployable friends or relations. Such we have seen very much in evidence over another recent Act, locally at least. No ? employer who values the respect of his fellow citizens, or his own self-respect, would endeavour to evade the Act, as your correspondent fears; and even if, from no higher motive, then the fear that some of his employes will act as inspector will keep the other class of employer to the letter of the Act. The spirit of the Act is surely much more evaded by philanthropic employers (?) extending the hours of employment on other days of the week, which was surely never intended. No more inspectors, but a truer spirit of real brotherhood between employer and employed. Yours, etc., Belfast, 7th May 1912. Benita
Small Gardens - To the Editor of the Northern Whig (date as above) - Sir, One of the disadvantages of residing in Belfast is in the danger of rheumatism, brought about principally by damp houses. It has occurred to me that many are anxious to get into a house with a small garden in front, and I would warn them against this course, All the water that falls into these gardens sinks into the ground, and I fear a great deal of it into the foundation, to rise as damp inside of the house, as there can be no evaporation through the paved front. If one wants a garden it would be better to cement the ground inside the railing, then put a few feet of really good soil, and allow the water to run into the footpath, this would keep the foundation perfectly dry. I would congratulate those who have no garden in front of their house as being safer in this respect than their more ambitious neighbours. Yours, etc., Thomas Gray, Crumlin Road, Belfast, 4th Mat 1912
